Dennis G. JohnsPLS President Carolina Surveying Services, Inc.

Lisa (Jones) at Carolina Flood Solutions is most knowledgeable about the implications and rating implications of the new Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act. As a long time Realtor in a coastal community where the implementation of Biggert waters is beginning to have a major impact on our business, I engaged her as a consultant for an analysis of a property for sale. She pointed out many inconsistencies in the rating we were getting from NFIP and made the property more marketable by reducing the cost of flood insurance. There is no one more capable on this subject.
